My daughter is on 1st grade and she's been attending this school since she was in PK. I love their Dual Language program. she is only 6 years old and she can read english and spanish at the same level. Plus the teacher are patient and sweet. If interested they also have an after school program managed by the childrens aid society. Good luck!
